Tags: Hedge Fund
Investor demand to pull money out from hedge funds dropped to a six-month low in July, following portfolio adjustments during the previous month, data released on Monday showed.

The SS&C GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator, a monthly snapshot of hedge fund clients giving notice to withdraw their cash expressed as a percentage of assets under administration, fell to 3.15% in July from 4.8% in June and the lowest since January.

"July's forward redemptions decreased by over 1%, but remain in line with historical averages," said Bill Stone, chairman and chief executive officer, SS&C Technologies.

Exit requests typically declined at the start of every quarter, the data showed.

The index is compiled by fund administrator SS&C Technologies Holdings Inc and is based on data provided by its fund clients, which represent about 10% of the assets invested in the hedge fund sector, or about $300 billion.
